2014 New Zealand Information Security Manual

The 2014 NZISM has been completely redeveloped in order to provide more clarity and to incorporate guidance on new technologies.  The redevelopment process was supported by extensive consultation within government and with the vendor and practitioner communities.

The 2014 NZISM is a practitioner’s manual designed to meet the needs of agency information security executives as well as vendors, contractors and consultants who provide services to agencies.  It includes minimum technical security standards for good system hygiene, as well as providing other technical and security guidance for government departments and agencies to support good information governance and assurance practices.
